Description:

A wonderful crop for the winter vegetable garden. The flavour and texture improve once the frosts have started as its sugars are released by the cold. This variety is very popular for autumn and winter Italian cooking 

Care:

Grows best on soil which has been manured the previous autumn. Firm the soil well around the plant base to prevent wind rock and keep moist. Protect against cabbage white butterflies. May also be grown in large containers. Apply lime to acidic soils to lessen the risk of clubroot.
